CONCERNED CHRISTIANS SUPPORTING
SUNDANESE MINISTRIES IN INDONESIA
LAMPSTAND is a concept of evangelism and church
planting among the Sundanese people of West Java. In Matthew 5:15,
Jesus says: Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel,
but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. The
purpose of LAMPSTAND is to proclaim and glorify the Lord Jesus among
1. Coordinate multiple
efforts of evangelism and church development through:
Training church leadership
Developing church music and other worship aids
Preparing and distributing literature
Promoting spiritual growth and enthusiasm through retreats.
2. Plant churches
Operating a Training School to prepare evangelists for doing cross
cultural evangelism and church planting
Supervising Church Planters in the ministry of church
planting among the Sundanese. This includes community development
LAMPSTAND encourages and supports
the endeavors of compatible groups with the same vision for the
Sundanese. This is done primarily through prayer, financial aid,
sending qualified teachers for the evangelists training school,
and through human rights advocacy.
The greatest danger for the Church in Indonesia
today is persecution which comes from the Muslim community with
support from the government structures. A response of love is Gods
way to win hearts and we have seen it have great impact in the past.
But those of us who pray for Indonesia must also advocate equal
human rights for Christians as well as for Muslims. We can do this
in part through contacting embassies and United Nations committees.
